refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to
the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the
fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a
beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look
beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
